Herts ladies meet Yorkshire in championship decider
HERTFORDSHIRE and Yorkshire will go head to head to decide the winner of the English Counties’ Championship in today’s ladies golf finale at Kedleston Park, Derbyshire.
Herts, who feature Brocket Hall golfer Charlie Douglass in their ranks, hold a slender half-point advantage having won all four of their matches so far this week.
Yesterday (Thursday), they continued their winning record with an 6-3 victory over Dorset.
Yorkshire, who beat Northamptonshire 5�-3�, are unbeaten this week with three wins and one halved match.
Yorkshire have dominated this event in recent years, winning the title five consecutive times from 2004. They missed County Finals last year and they’ve come back determined to win.

Captain Liz Haw said: “We will be going for it tomorrow. It’s all to play for.”
Herts are equally determined. They’ve never won the championship, although they have been runners-up four times – and they’d dearly love to capture the title.

Team captain Jackie Foster said: “I think we have a really good opportunity to win tomorrow and the foursomes will be all-important, as they have been all week.
“The girls are really chuffed and I’m glad it’s in our own hands: we can go out there and win it, without depending on other teams’ results.”
In their match yesterday Herts made that all-important start with 2� points from the foursomes, which underpinned a solid singles performance.
Yorkshire, similarly, did well in the foursomes, with two wins, and they secured their point after singles wins from Naomi Edwards, Rebecca Wood and Emma Brown.
Ellie Robinson managed to halve her match despite injuring her wrist while playing a bunker shot on the ninth.
